don't let it put you off you don't know anyone - I've not met anybody off this forum yet either and I'll be going - plus I'm sure not everybody is a superfit whippet. We're out there for some fun, right?

I think we managed about 2 miles in 8 hours at the last meet due to faffing and general chat.. :lol:

I seriously doubt anyone will struggle to keep up.. I reckon my Mum could cope and she's got a dicky hip !!

i have travelled the country looking for my son, that my ex left with, him spent more time in courts trying to get custody, eventually did, got married, did a dozen dead end jobs, trained to be a lecturer had job during and before teaching when qualified, college let us all go as funding cuts and a few more personal tragedies like but wont go into them.

But i get what you saying is that you like wedding cake i couldnt be bloody ar*ed getting married again if i split up with the ball and chain to much crap involved.

and ontop of that i got four kids and dont want anymore and neither does my wife another woman might want more kids, noooooooooooo

cant do it anymore costs to bloody much, but yeah not in position to do this one but will be keeping my eye out for the next event sounds fun[/quote]

George Hotel: oldest pub in Hayfield despite what landlord of Bulls Head says. Staunch supporters of Kinder Mountain Rescue Team. Excellent beer (Jennings Cumberland and A.N.Other guest). Food, plenty of it, pitched at cheap and cheerful level. recommended.
